My girlfriends mom is coming into town. Last time she was here we found some amazing places to eat and I want to keep that trend going. I didn't know about Chowhound back then so I am hoping to impress.
I always check Chowhound for out to eat options with the GF where we keep meal with drinks under $50. With her in town we get to go to all those expensive places I skip over.
A place on the ocean would be nice for one meal.
I live in Santa Monica
GF lives in North Hollywood.
So really any place from Santa Monica east (plus up to Malibu if needed - we ate at Moonshadows one night which was great).
Price is not a conern, good food and vibe is. They do not eat red meat so no steak houses.
My brain is blanking out at some of the great suggetions, which were always out of my price range, that I read about here. Just in Santa Monica I know there are some great ones.
Id like to make reservations for a few nights tomorrow so any thoughts would be great.
